Black Sesame Seed Milk + Halva Shake

Sesame milk can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge to use on cereal or drunk as is. For the best results, the milk should be chilled before making this shake.
Prep Time10 minutes
Total Time10 minutes
Servings: 2


  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Blender
  • Nut milk bag


  • 1 cup black sesame seeds soaked at least 4 hours
  • 3 cups of water
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • Pinch of cardamom
  • 2-3 medjool dates
  • 1 frozen banana
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla


Make The Sesame Milk First

  • Drain the soaked seeds and combine them with 3 cups of fresh water and salt.
  • Blend in a high-speed blender for a few minutes until frothy. Drain milk through a nut milk bag.
  • Keep the sesame pulp for baking (crackers, gomasio, etc), or compost it.

Make The Shake

  • Combine 2-3 cups of the sesame milk (depending on how thick you like it. I like them thick) along with with the banana, tahini, vanilla, cardamom, and pitted dates. Puree until smooth.
